For a Cold
Take a large tea-cupfull of [Lindsew] two pennyworth of [stuk]-liquorish, a Quarter of a pd of Sun-Raisins, put these into two Quarts of [illegible] water, then add to it a quarter of a pd of brown sugar candy powdered, a tablespoonfull of the best white wine vinegar or Lemon juice.
[n]ote the [k]um & vinegar are best to be added only to that Quantity that you are I'm[inserted above: m]ediately going to take; for if it is put into the whole, it is apt in a little time to grow flat
Drink half a pint at going to Bed & take a little whenever the Cough is troublesome
